Conceptual writing is emerging as a vital 21st century literary movement and I'll Drown My Book represents the contributions of women in this defining moment. Edited by Caroline Bergvall, Laynie Browne, Teresa Carmody and Vanessa Place, I'll Drown My Book takes its name from a poem by Bernadette Mayer, appropriating Shakespeare. The book includes work by 64 women from 10 countries, with contributors' responses to the question – What is conceptual writing? – appearing alongside their work. I'll Drown My Book offers feminist perspectives within this literary phenomenon.
